So I mainly work on rigging and animating designs/characters that others have made, usually within After Effects, and I feel pretty confident in those skills.
But when it comes to doing my own personal projects where I have to do the illustration and designs everything I make feels so meh and I usually give up before I can get to the parts that I enjoy, rigging and animating.
So my question to everyone is how do I set up my skills as an illustrator? And what are some good resources for doing this?
Also what is your process for designing?
